Yes. Quest is the worst for testing for these infections because they don't train their lab techs to do the tests properly, so the wrong testing medium (the stuff int he petri dish) isn't the one that works best, and they don't give the test enough time. Not the tech's fault, they weren't properly trained. That's why we usually suggest either Igenex or Stony Brook labs for these tests. They are specialty labs, so they understand what they are testing for and use the best methods to be the most accurate. You could test positive using one of those labs.
There are lots of posts about
heart issues due to these infections. And when there are issues such as those, and there seems to be no reason why it just started one day, Lyme can often be the reason.
There's a reason why even the CDC says that these infections need to be diagnosed by symptoms. Now, that's about
all the correct information you will find on Lyme on that site, but it's there!
" Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks. Laboratory testing is helpful if used correctly and performed with validated methods. "www.cdc.gov/lyme/
I would encourage you to start detoxing, and getting your diet healthier (if you need to) while you wait. If you still wish to do more, you could always start an herbal protocol that would be safe to use while you use abx as well if that's what you wish to use.
